Default Bad Squad Form

I have a home gym at my house and don't have a squat rack. In order for me to do squats I have to do clean and presses and then rest the bar on my shoulders every set. Because I am still somewhat of a beginner, I could only get about 130lbs over my head for only one set, because of how exhausting it was do do both exercises.

When I do squats though my back rounds forward and my arms have a bad range of motion to hold to bar as well. And when I do them my chest nearly touches my legs. Instead of doing the exercise incorrectly I decided to do one legged dumbbell squat off a bench, it seems to hit the muscle far more effectively for me.

So my question is, do I continue doing one legged squats and continually bumbing up the weight every other week, or practice more on my squat form.

And another question, which do you find to be more effective?
